Cancer support group Gilda’s Club South Florida will host its 11th annual “Day of Research and Hope” conference on March 9 at the Signature Grand in Davie. This year’s educational conference will feature Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz as the keynote speaker.
Discussion topics at the conference will include new developments in colon, rectal, prostate and breast cancer as well as updates from the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, da Vinci Robotic Surgery, Holistic Nutrition and Cancer, Cost of Care, Patients’ Rights, and Integrative Medicine.
Shelley Goren, president and CEO at Gilda’s Club, said the conference is a time for attendees to learn information about new research and innovation in the fight against cancer that may otherwise not be available.
“The Day of Research and Hope is a rare opportunity for the community to get answers from experts in the field of cancer research and treatment,” Goren said.
In addition to Wasserman Schultz, the conference will featured a panel of top physicians presenting on advancements in cancer treatment and specialized breakout sessions.
The event is free to anyone touched by cancer, caregivers, survivors, medical professionals, and the general public. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
